I'm trying to download Flash through IE and it's giving me an error that says:

"Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded"

I looked at security and it was set to Med.  

Any ideas?

if this is so, then it might be because of firewall/antivirus you have on your system.

I uninstalled IE10, which made IE9 live again and had the same security warning.  Upgrading to IE11 now to see if it does anything.

it will not work, because you have enabled all IE related settings, but it seems issue with security firewall/Antivirus on your system.

I actually disabled Real-time protection and it was still doing it.

I'm trying this now:

I pressed the button that said Reset All Internet Explorer Settings.  As directed here:

What are the settings now. I think you should accept one of my answer as I told in my previous comments that its because of internet settings or security settings that you have on your machine.

It wasn't something outside of Internet Explorer that was blocking it.  All my settings in IE that we could both see appeared to be correct.  I wonder if IE settings just got corrupted somehow.  

I really do appreciate your help, but I can't blindly accept an answer that didn't work.  That's not how EE works.
